Unique models of Soviet cars that never existed (50 photos)

Have you ever seen a “eared” Zaporozhets station wagon? What about the four-door “humpback”? What about Chaika pickup or ZIM coupe? Meanwhile, such cars exist, but, however, only in 1/43 scale.

The cars collected in this gallery were made by collector and owner of golden hands Alexey Khlystunov from Tyumen. As a rule, he takes as a basis for his amazing conversions models that were published in the magazine series “Autolegends of the USSR”. Alexey's creations often look so harmonious that one can only regret the lack of real prototypes for them. And if, say, a GAZ-13 Chaika with a pickup body could theoretically appear, becoming a Soviet analogue of the American Chevrolet El Camino and Ford Ranchero, then the Zaporozhets station wagon is meaningless due to its rear-engine layout, although such a modification looks very elegant! Alexey's models are distinguished by high attention to detail, including detailed and painted interiors, so looking at them is a pleasure.
